Disc 1 is a lovely compilation of natural VLF radio signal (audio-frequency) of Earth's Magnetosphere, recorded by Stephen P. McGreevy, N6NKS in the summer of 2000 in Alberta, Canada. This album follows "Electric Enigma" (1996), "Auroral Chorus I" (1998), and "Auroral Chorus II: The Music of the Magnetosphere" (2000). All my other MP3 albums pertaining to Natural-VLF-Radio are on archive.org. Disc 2 (on this site) contains natural VLF radio field-recordings from...

Our planet Earth is alive with a vast amount of natural-electricity - Lightning! Every lightning bolt within 3,000 miles or about 5,000 km of the VLF receiver creates a pop or a crackle in a VLF receiver's audio output, especially at these AUDIO-frequency radio-waves. Because lightning storms produce vast amounts of radio energy at VLF frequencies, the World-Wide Lightning Location Network (wwlln.net) employs VLF receivers to direction-find and map lightning strokes via the very VLF signals...

"Auroral Chorus IV" is my largest online natural VLF radio-phenomena compendium album on Internet Archive. More than half of the MP3 audio files on this page are field-recordings of Earth's "Natural VLF Radio" signals and are quite beautiful. AND MORE!: In addition to the large archive of natural VLF radio recordings here, I have added a great amount of fascinating acoustic field-recordings at an old desert mine tank (fabulous and bizarre echo/resonance/reverb/effects),...

Between 04 to 20 September 2009, I visited 11 countries in northern and eastern Europe as part of a tour group with Cosmos Tours. Naturally, being a longwave, mediumwave, and FM broadcast-band DXer, I brought along two receivers and two digital audio recorders--a Sony ICF-SW7600GR, a 1981-era Realistic Am/FM/TV receiver (analog, for doing seamless band-scans on MW and FM), a Zoom H2 (hi-quality) and Olympus voice-recorder (low-fi). Included herein are AM (MW) and FM Radio reception and... Topics: russia, St. petersburg, radio, radio reception, am, fm
A wonderful collection of Earth's mysterious (VLF) audio-frequency "Natural Radio" signals of Earth's Magnetosphere. "The Music of the Magnetosphere." This album, originally released as 1040 CD copies in the year 2000 (as a single 52 minute CD set), follows up the wildly successful double-CD set Irdial-Discs' "Electric Enigma" released in London, UK, in 1996. However, in addition to the track-descriptions available with the CD-version, this Internet Archive...

Field-recordings of Earth's "Natural VLF Radio" signals (audio-frequency natural-radio signals) coming from Earth's magnetosphere. This was the first of the "Auroral Chorus" series but was never widely released - only to a few people until the uploading of onto Internet Archives.

August 2000 Solar-Maximum Natural VLF Radio Stereo-Recording Expedition to Alberta, Canada. Between 06 and 14 August 2000 during a period of high solar-activity, I set-up two delta-loop-antenna stereo cross-azimuth recording systems to capture the magnetosphere's spectacular natural VLF radio reception in north-western Alberta near the Whitemud River to the west of Dixonville, Alberta. "The Music of the Magnetosphere." Portions of these recordings (only a small fraction) appear in... Topics: natural radio, VLF, auroral chorus, Stephen P.

This is an audio-presentation of the sounds of longwave and mediumwave (AM) broadcast-band DXing in China - 03 to 20 November 2013. During a 17-day tour of several Chinese cities and attractions, I brought with me my trusty Sony ICF-SW7600GR portable LW/MW/SW/FM receiver that is very sensitive. This was the best of two receivers I brought along with me on my tour of several Chinese cities and the surrounding countryside, plus four nights upon the Yangtze River (heading upstream) on the Century...

Relatively few people, aside from radio "DXers" (people whom enjoy a pastime/hobby of pursuing long-distance radio reception by various signal-propagation means) know that FM broadcast radio stations, and also television broadcast stations, can "propagate" for extraordinary long-distances at certain times of the year and are not simply limited to "line-of-sight" reception. This is particularly true during the DXer's local summertime period, when the ionesphere can... Topics: DX, FM DX, TV DX, sporadic-E skip, long-distance radio reception, Es
The second disc of a double-album, entitled "Auroral Chorus III: The Music of the Magnetosphere is another spectacular release by natural VLF radio field-recordist Stephen P. McGreevy, N6NKS. This album contains more recent summer 2000 and summer 2001 VLF-radio expeditions to northern Alberta (disc 1) and northern Saskatchewan, Canada (disc 2), over solar-maximum.

Mediumwave (AM) Broadcast-band DXpedition to Oahu, Hawaii, November 2010; MF/HF DXpedition to Point Reyes, California 06-08 October 2010; Longwave Dxpedition near Darwin, Calif. 17-18 January 2011: Between 15 to 21 November 2010, I returned after a 19-year absence to the gorgeous Hawaiian Islands to do a Mediumwave (AM) broadcast-band DX reception survey and recording project, and to see how many of my Mojave Desert HF (A1A) beacons I could receive too. I had previously extensively DXed the... Topics: dx, radio, mediumwave, hawaii, dxpedition
On the weekend of March 24th to the 26th of 2000, Three intrepid radio-enthusiasts ventured into the Mojave National Preserve and set-up a 20-watt shortwave transmitter (AM) - an old TCS-13 built in 1944, along with a huge battery and an inverter, as well as an end-fed antenna wire. The three guys at KMUD-shortwave (Ed, Kirk, and Steve) received an ongoing barrage of telephone calls, as the world-famous and remote Mojave Phone Booth constantly rang with callers from around the World to the now...

A compilation of excellent long-distance (DX) radio-reception of AM radio stations at nighttime as received on the Big Island of Hawaii, Kauai, and Oahu, Hawaii. Recordings compiled from Cassette tapes between 1986 and 1991 during several DX sessions using various radio receivers, including a Realistic DX-200 and Kenwood R-1000. Various long antenna wires including long "Beverage" wire-antenna(s) were employed to makes these astounding receptions. It was back in the times of when...
